Today's conditions were a copy of yesterday's; a 57 degree water temperature, very little wind and almost glassy conditions at times, some occasional large waves and hardly any birds, one seal and no bait fish. Rob and I were going to swim to the rock off of Fossil Point if the conditions were this nice but we had not counted on the number of boats and fishermen that were out. They were near the reefs and off of the point and the rock and were moving around as we watched, so we decided not to swim out amongst them and instead swam to the Poly Pier. We went down the buoy line to the creek, over to the second set of cross bracing, to the end of the Avila Pier and in. We were in the water for about 40 minutes and covered approx. 1.25 miles. Jerry Gross got there after we had started so he went out on a run and we contemplating getting in when I left.
Rob and I are going to keep up the Wednesday evening swims until dark and conditions make it a bad idea, so we will be swimming mid-week until I post a quitting date.
